Hello everyone,
i would like to know what are the latest technologies or classes used when a project requires a midium sized database.

I am researching foundations,methods or technologies for an upcoming windows forms application which will require a data store (sql server).. ex: ADO.NET, ODBC ,and etc.

** I will be developing in VB.NET using VS2010

Do you need "the latest" or something which works well? :-)

try to use Entity Framework with ORM.

Okay, if you need complicated manipulations with data, i suggest you to use EntityFramework (because it allows you to map DB tables with your classes and operate with classes afterwards, which is much easier).

If the whole idea of your application is to simply add,delete and modify, you can use ADO.NET, which is pretty easy to learn (just follow Microsoft's tutorials).
